Happy Birthday Elaine

Elaine is shown down at the bank with her name on the marque wishing her a Happy Birthday. She was up early this morning to start the celebration. When I got up a few minutes later and had just set down to read the paper, I felt a sensation of motion but having just gotten up, thought it was my own lack of stability. It was only a few minutes later that Facebook began to have stories of the Earthquake in eastern Oklahoma and it's effects being felt over a wide area including ours. This was our Saturday to take things to the recycle center. The Kiwanis crew was working there today and all sang Happy Birthday to Elaine. We went to lunch out at "Nate's on the Nine" and had a great Ham and Cheese sandwich along with Sweet Potato Fries. Carolyn called this morning from Seattle, WA; Jon called from Burke, VA; and Tim called from Marquette, MI and was watching the Nebraska-Fresno St game after being up  there to watch Tony run a Marathon. We received about 3/4 of an inch of rain during the afternoon on a day that didn't get above 70 degrees. This will be a birthday that Elaine will remember, and it isn't over yet.
